Pricing and Billing
LA Tutors 123 offers varying rates for private tutoring and admissions consulting services. All packages are prepaid and non-refundable. Tutoring hours don’t expire and are transferable to any family members or friends. Our packages are designed to encourage consistency and maximize the positive results of the tutorial sessions. The client agrees to authorize LA Tutors 123 to charge the balance IN FULL for the selected package to the credit card provided, immediately upon signing up for our services. The client shall not pay the tutor or admissions consultant directly. All payments from the client must be directed to and delivered to LA Tutors 123. In addition, all client referrals must be directed to LA Tutors 123 before services can be rendered to the referred client.
LA Tutors 123 enforces a strict 24-hour cancellation policy for all scheduled sessions. You must give your tutor or admissions consultant 24 hours advance notice to cancel or reschedule an appointment. Appointments cancelled less than 24 hours before the session will be billed as if they had occurred. Additionally, you are responsible for arriving on time to your scheduled sessions (if not meeting at home); otherwise, the wait time will be counted as part of the tutoring time. Small group class cancellations must be made and confirmed by all attending students 24 hours in advance. Missing students will be billed for any class that is held.
You must pay in full at the time of enrollment. If you have not paid in full by the first scheduled session, you authorize LA Tutors 123 to charge the package total to the payment method on file.
If you lose your program materials, replacement books will not be provided for free. You may either purchase a replacement book from a 3rd party or purchase the materials from LA Tutors 123.
Hours vs Sessions
Please note that session lengths vary; the number of hours you have purchased does not necessarily correspond to the number of sessions you will have. LA Tutors 123 does not refund unused hours.
Payment for Additional Tutoring Hours
If you complete more hours than the number for which you initially enrolled, you authorize LA Tutors 123 to charge your payment method on file for any additional hours you have used at the non-discounted applicable rate for the services. Without limiting the foregoing, additional hours will not be eligible for any discount, promotion or rebate. Speak regularly with your tutor and/or admissions consultant throughout the process so you know how many hours you have completed.
Please note that LA Tutors 123 tutors and admissions consultants are not permitted to meet in person with a minor student in a private home unless a parent or guardian is present (on-site) during the entire session. If a tutor or admissions consultant arrives for a session and such an adult is not present, the sessions may not continue. The session will be considered cancelled by the student without adequate notice, and you will be charged under our cancellation policy because the session was effectively cancelled without 24 hours advance notice. If the parent or guardian leaves in the middle of a session, the tutor and/or admissions consultant will also leave at that time, and you will be charged for the entire session. If a session is taking place in a room, the door must remain open and unlocked at all times. Tutors and admisions consultants may also meet in person with minor students in public locations, such as a library or coffee shop, when the parent or guardian is present. The adult supervision requirement does not apply to students who are eighteen (18) years or older.
Students and tutor are recommended to wear face coverings at all times during the in-person tutoring session. Safe physical distancing (i.e. separation by at least 6 feet) should be kept whenever possible. Tutors will screen students at the start of every session by asking if they are experiencing COVID symptoms. If either students or tutor test positive for COVID, in-person lessons may not resume until person(s) are fever free and asymptomatic for 24 hours in addition to testing negative for COVID with two sequential tests 48 hours apart.
Tutor Satisfaction Guarantee
We are committed to 100% client satisfaction. If for any reason you are not happy with the tutor we have assigned to you, please contact LA Tutors 123 within 24 hours of the tutorial session. We will assign a new tutor and credit your account for the first hour of your first session with your original tutor. If you request a different tutor more than 24 hours after the tutorial session, the original session will be charged in full.

If the student takes an official test six months or less before the start of their LA Tutors 123 program, we will compare the prior official test score to the official score on the test the student takes on the next official test date following the final session of their program.
If the student has not taken an official test six months or less before the start of their LA Tutors 123 program, we will compare the results of their first practice test in our program to their score on the official test they take on the next official test date following the final session of their program.
